Let's hope they don't end up with a mouse. Maybe S&S came up with a design for a family coaster similar to Steel Hawg at IB? That'd be cool to see something like that go up down south. But I'd hope they'd find a way to have more than 1 car trains, capacity is terrible on Hawg!

I agree about a true spinning mouse, but I could see a Gerstlaur spinning coaster fitting in well at HW. Then again I could see a Euro Fighter or a launch coaster there too. Those just don't make me think "Woozy" though.

Maybe they're getting a Woozseeker.

I think we can reasonably assume that HW will never buy another ride from Intamin.

I will stand Pat that I was told the same thing about Intamin.

Intamin hasn't made too many friends in the way of future repeat purchases in the industry from things I've heard. I know PP has had its fair share of issues, though I'm not sure to what extent they were widely known (as I don't really know the details, I just know they generally had issues).

^ Really? Cause it sounds like there will be more high profile Intamins opening yet again in 2012.

But I could see why a park like Holiday World might hold that view.

There are a great many people in the industry who have no desire to do business with them again, for a number of reasons, some of which have little to do with the rides themselves.

I would like to see HW continue to have a great water park, and wooden coaster collection. I hope branching off into steel coasters, and jumbo flats doesn't cause them to spread themselves too thin. This doesn't mean I never want them to have a steel coaster. I just don't want them to go too big too soon, and start to resemble the ride line up of a six flags. Next thing you know we will have to start paying for drinks ;)

^There are some great flats to pick from, besides the Jumbo ones :)

Jumbo...mmmm Jumbo Jet :)

I'm pretty sure a looper is hot on their list. Imagine Mind Bender or HW!

^ I liked AVmatts looper. I'd like to see them go really small or REALLY big with their steel. No run of the mill steel coaster if they are putting big dollars into it. Either a spinning mouse, or try for the #1 steel in the world.

Are they really starting a new land (holiday)? Seems like thanksgiving could still use some additions. Am I wrong

Maybe they found a nice one of these for sale. Really nothing would make me happier. I'd even give up season of ERT on all 3 woodies for one of those I'm dreaming of.

Been forever since I posted, but I thought I'd give you all some more info.

I was at HW on Friday and talked to Dan Koch on the way out. Very classy guy. Anyway, he confirmed the $9 million price tag but added an interesting twist. He said the $9 million is (to paraphrase) "solely for the attraction alone. That cost doesn't include other things such as improvements to the parking lot."

Knowing that I would be very surprised if it's not a coaster. But if it isn't, any single non-coaster ride in the $9 million range will be impressive.

^^Oh yeah! Anything Anton (or by his son, Werner) would be GREAT! Those trains, simple comfortable and safe lap bars... perfect!
